Chad Ford gives the Warriors a B+ offseason grade

11

His grades are insider content, so I'll post what he had to say about Golden State. "The Warriors badly want to start winning and took another step in that direction with a pretty strong draft. Barnes may have been overrated coming out of high school, but he was a value at No. 7 and should be able to step right in and grab the starting small forward spot. I'm also a big fan of Draymond Green as a versatile role player on a good team. He has a high basketball IQ, is skilled and can come in and contribute right away. Jarrett Jack, whom they acquired via trade, gives Golden State some support at the point guard position should Stephen Curry struggle with injuries again. If everyone stays healthy and Andrew Bogut can get back to All-Star form, the Warriors could be a sleeper team in the West. Few teams in the NBA have such lethal shooters surrounding a solid low-post presence." Only 3 teams earned higher grades, and if we are able to re-sign Rush and bring in a big, our grade could go up even further.
